Good evening
I've been out most of the day but was determined to make a card this evening with my new cartridge that my dear friend Lillie RAK'd me.
I cut a black pearlescent card at 5"x 5, s printed some pink/black dottie paper from Pink Petticoat CD Lola's Boudoir (I adjusted the colour in my graphics programme for a stronger pink) Using Walk In My Garden Cartridge I cut the cone flower at 1 1/2"in pink/black dot and the head of the flower in plain pink and plain black for layer, adhered together and glossy accents on the head of the flower. I also cut from the same cart 3 green metallic card leaf 3 leaves. I used stringed silver sequins for the stem which I used glossy accents as a glue ( this is wonderful glue for really sticking anything down and holds really fast!) I then pop dotted the flower and added some frilly ribbon cut down (from poppicrafts) around the centre of the flower and positioned and adhered leaves along the stem. The word bloom is cut from silver mirri card and is a sizzlit die.
Thanks so much Lillie I love my new cart! Thanks for looking!

Last week my MB friend Enfys pm'd me (for non MB members thats an email through the Cricut forum!) Enfys lives In the UK And also part of the time in Florida. Well she said that Michael's in the US was having a sale and could she do any shopping there for me? Wow I said yes please, how kind of her to do this!
Anyway Enfys managed to get all I asked her for which was Paper Dolls cartridge and 2 Martha Stewart punches the latter being impossible to find in the UK.

Good Afternoon all

I was asked to make a 1st birthday card for a little boy Jayden from his great grandmother.
I used a DL white card and adhered two patterned strips of paper across the centre of the card. Jayden is cut from silver mirror card with cricut and Plantin School/ Roly Poly at 1 1/4" then embossed with cuttlebug folder tiny bubbles. Letters are the adhered across the centre at a jaunty angle and every other letter is pop dotted. the buttons are from my stash. Blue text is computer generated font is LDJ Miss Me.
Thanks for looking and for all you crafters out there did you spot the mistake??!! Argh I debossed the letters instead of embossing and only noticed after I embossed!! Ha ha but they still seem to look ok!

click on pictures for a better view! The first 5 photos at the top of this post should be at the bottom after these photos to tell the story!

Good Evening

Or should that be good morning as it's 1.15am here!!

I was asked to do a mini album for an 18th. My mum's best friend known to me as Auntie Sheila (as she and my mum have been best friends since they were 11 years old!!) asked if I would do a mini album for her granddaughter Alex who is turning 18 today! I have only done a couple of these before I did one each for my Mum and Dad when they turned 70 two years ago so I said yes!

Alex is a cyclist and this weekend is in Poland defending her European Junior Points Champion title that she won last year! We heard yesterday that she had retained her title! WAY TO GO ALEX watch out for her in the future! and a Happy 18th Birthday for today!

For the album I used a 6x6 ready made K&Co Neapolitan album, there were a lot of pictures to fit in so I kept it quite simple using some epoxy stickers , Queen & co felt borders in lilac cut up as accents on the pages. I also had this cute little silver bicycle charm that I joined to one of the photos with a jump ring. For the matting of the photos I used Anna Griffin papers and also Anna Griffin paper for the journalling tags that were computer generated with a CK font.

I made a box using a .cut file from Okieladybug it was her 6" cheesecake box and I just deleted the circle cut out! So Thank you Okie this was a perfect size for the album. Cream Anna Griffin cardstock for the base and a 12x12 paper from K&CO Neapolitan stack for the lid which match the album perfectly. Some organza ribbon from my stash!

My Auntie was very pleased with the Album and will give it to Alex when she returns from her

cycling competition.

Whoops! the photos have come up very randomly and not being very computer savvy with regards to blogging I can't move them around so sorry for the order they are in!!

Thanks for looking!

Excuse my photography the photo looks like it's lined
but it's not in real life!

Back of card.

Hello all
Happy Autumn to you all though I'm still waiting for Summer to appear!

I made this card today, my friend wanted a photo card for her nieces 1st wedding anniversary. It seems like only yesterday I made her a wedding card!
I changed the photo to black and white and cropped it on my computer. White DL card matted the photo on silver mirricard with double sided foam tape then double sided foam tap to mat on to card. Sentiment is computer generated font Bernhard Fashion BT. Then I adhered a few tiny clear heart crystal over the photo. Quite plain but I'm pleased with it. TFL
